LIES IN STORE ADS
Sometimes we see ads which mention “ASL speaking
staff” in shops or stores.
Are these ads honest? Many times the “ASL hearing
person” will struggle with fingerspelling – when trying
to spell:

Hi, my name is ……………”

Are these stores and shops liars? You decide.

This week’s ASL video in youtube

HEARING EMPLOYEE TELLING A LIE
A new deaf employee, confused about the job
assignments, asked a hearing employee for
help and advice.
The hearing employee replied:

I am sorry. I don’t understand the work assignment
you are doing

It forced the deaf employee to find another
hearing employee for help and advice.
Few months later, the deaf employee realized
that the first hearing employee knew everything
but said “I don’t understand” just to avoid
communicating with a deaf person!
It is sad that some hearing employees will
lie to a deaf employee.

DEAF HAVE TO BE CAREFUL WTIH SOME BARBERS
A deaf man with long hair, walks into a
different barber shop. The barber does not
know him.
He gestures to the barber that he wants
his hair cut short.
Barber is confused. Short?  Meaning
cut off almost all of long hair? Or
to cut just a little off the long hair?

Lip reading tale

At a farm, the hearing farmer was chatting with
his deaf friend.

The deaf person thought the hearing farmer said:
Be careful of that animal, he will core people if angry

The hearing farmer actually said:
Be careful of that animal, he will gore people if angry

FIGHTING OR PLAYING?
We often see dogs rough it up with each other. Are they
fighting or playing? Hint – look at dog’s tails and jaws.

We often see hearing people “rough” with each other.

Are they fighting or playing? Hearing people can tell by
listening to their voices – angry voice or playful
voices.

The deaf often cannot tell if it is playing or
fighting!

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series

Stenocaptioners use the left pinkie, ring finger, and middle finger to
depress the initial consonants S, K, and W on the bottom row. When the K
and W are depressed together, we get the sound for the letter Q.

These letters can be used together to produce the blended sounds at the
beginning of words. With a slip of one of these fingers, a totally
different word than the captioner intended can appear.

Some examples of this would be:
She wanted chocolate and vanilla squirrel ice cream
When doing weightlifting, swats can be a difficult exercise.
The child drew a circle and a scare.

These should be read as:
She wanted chocolate and vanilla swirl ice cream.
When doing weightlifting, squats can be a difficult exercise.
The child drew a circle and a square.

News of the Week – Looking Back 10 Years Ago:

There are some prisons that do not know how to deal with
deaf inmates with health issues that require medication.
An example is the Allegheny County Jail in Pennsylvania.
A deaf inmate needed medication and repeatedly requested it
with the prison staff only to be ignored. After getting out,
he filed a lawsuit in federal court. The county then reached
settlement with him.

-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

News of the Week – Looking Back 5 Years Ago:

The American Bar Association enacted a resolution, asking
companies to hire more and more disabled and deaf attorneys.
Will this help? Well, to date, only five companies have
pledged to hire deaf attorneys – either as outside counsel
or as an in-house attorney.
